Automotive

The skills and tools we bring have been developed through our broader work experience. This included working in association with a major UK Consultancy to help a prestigious global Automotive company to deliver savings and wider benefits through sourcing projects.

The challenge

To train and mentor multiple project teams, each conducting a deep dive into category strategies across production and non-production purchasing. Typical cohorts consisted of 5 project teams of 4 people drawn from purchasing, cost engineering and value engineering collaborating with stakeholders across the business and reporting out at board level.

Benefits achieved

Projects supported were found across a wide range of categories:

  • Production parts
  • Aftermarket parts
  • Consumables
  • Connected Car & eMobility
  • Construction
  • Mobile phones
  • IT
  • Import/Export

Collaborative working between the team delivered savings and wider benefits through:

  • Problem solving and data collection
  • Procurement analytics
  • Developing and improving category strategies
  • Communication & Influencing
  • Facilitating Workshops
  • Stakeholder engagement & communication
  • Presentation and story lining

Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people
